Wakamatsu Koji soundtracks
« on: October 17, 2008, 07:22:55 AM »
Some of you might be interested in a series of soundtracks to classic late sixties and early seventies films by cult director Wakamatsu Koji (the same guy who did the Endless Waltz movie about Abe Kaoru). They're all on Solid Records/Ultra Vybe.
Four volumes have been released, with mucho prime and mostly unreleased material from the period:

Vol 1: Tenshi no kokotsu (Ecstasy of Angel), 1972 - Yosuke Yamashita Trio
Vol 2: Shinjuku Mad, 1970 - Food Brain
Vol 3: Haragashi onna (Womb to Let), 1968 - Jacks

There's also a soundtrack to Wakamatsu's latest film, United Red Army, by Jim O'Rourke. Various small units, including a couple of tracks with Chris Corsano and Akira Sakata. It includes a cover of Bill Fay's "Pictures of Adolf".
